Casino withdrawal limits suck, right? Unfortunately, they come part and parcel in this industry but there’s no doubt withdrawal limits and maximum cashouts are every players worst nightmare. But, if you know about these before you play in your chosen casino online they need not taunt you any longer. In today’s bog I’m going to talk you through what they both mean and how you can avoid them. And don’t worry if you’re a complete beginner because I’ll start right from the beginning and be as frank as I can.
What are Online Casino Withdrawal limits?
Playing your favourite slot games and games is the fun part. Winning is the hard part. And I’m pretty sure I can speak for every gambler on the planet when I say no-one wants their hard earned withdrawal refused.
Now one of the reasons a withdrawal could be rejected is because of a casino withdrawal limit. And if I’m going to be honest then Ishould say then pretty much every online casino will have some kind of withdrawal limits, in some shape or form. A withdrawal limit is simply a limit on the amount you can withdraw in a single or multiple transactions.
Now casino cash withdrawal limits differ from casino to casino. Some will apply daily limits. Some will apply weekly limits. Some will apply monthly limits. The best place to find this information is in the casinos terms and conditions so if you’re wondering whether or not you need to bother checking these yes you do!
Check the casinos terms and conditions for their daily, weekly and monthly withdrawal limits.
If a casino sets a daily limit you will be able to make a withdrawal up to the maximum allowed and will then need to make another withdrawal the next day and so on until you get all your winnings. Same goes for weekly withdrawal limits and monthly ones. Some are time limited and some are limited by the actual amount so just make sure you understand them all to be on the safe side.
But I Want All My Cash Now
Well, yes this is understandable considering you’ve just worked so hard to win it but if a casino has a withdrawal limit then you’ll probably need to stick to it. Let’s say, for example, there’s a weekly withdrawal limit of £5,000 you can make weekly withdrawals in increments of £5,000.
That £50,000 or whatever the amount is you just won will still all be yours don’t worry, you’ll need to wait to receive it all instead of in one lump sum. But with all that being said, don’t be too disheartened because some casinos will be willing to waiver their withdrawal limit if you’ve just hit a huge jackpot win so you can receive it all in one go. This is purely down to the casino’s discretion but if you ever find yourself in this situation it’s always worthwhile asking support first.
Some casinos also authorize higher withdrawal limits on request so this is just another thing you can bear in mind.
VIP and High Rollers
Now if you’re a high roller, constantly withdrawing large amounts then these withdrawal limits can be a real pain (more so than for a low roller). Luckily there are some casinos out there where you can raise your loyalty status to become a VIP. More often or not VIP’s will enjoy the benefits of increased or no withdrawal limits so make sure you check the casinos you play in for these kinds of benefits.
How to Avoid Withdrawal Limits
If you don’t want to be restricted by the amount you can withdraw then you’ll need to play in casinos who have more relaxed withdrawal rules. Some casinos will have much higher withdrawal limits than others and it can also depend on your chosen withdrawal method too.
Withdrawing to an e-wallet account like Neteller or Skrill could really lower the amount you are allowed to withdraw in a single transaction. However, withdrawing back to let’s say by a bank account or even bitcoin could result in an unlimited amount of daily withdrawals so you can get your money quicker using multiple withdrawals a day.
Ultimately you need to make sure you check the terms and conditions before you play. If you’re clued up you’re not going to be disappointed further down the line.
What About Maximum Cashout Limits
Okay so these may sound the same, but they’re not, so make sure you don’t get these mixed up. Online casino maximum cashout limits are basically the maximum amount you are allowed to withdraw based on how much you deposit or how much your bonus was. Just to clear up: if a casino sets a 10x maximum cashout and you have deposited £50, regardless of how much you have just won, you will only be allowed to withdraw up to a maximum of £500 (That’s £50 x 10). Sucks, right?
What happens to the rest? Well, the casino will confiscate it as soon as they process your withdrawal. Now, if I didn’t have your attention before I’m pretty sure I have it now because no one wants to be cut caught short by this rule.
A maximum cashout will restrict how much you can withdraw regardless of how much you have won.
Online casino cashout limits won’t apply in every place you play in but this is why it is vitally important that you do understand them in case they crop up when you least expect it.
So, You’ve Just Won Big
Just to be clear on what I have just said let’s picture the scene. You’ve found the perfect casino to play in. Great. You’ve just hit a major jackpot. Even better. You’ve requested a withdrawal for the full amount.
You tell your friends and family, really start to get excited and start celebrating when you receive that email or see the withdrawal has been processed at a much lower amount and no remaining funds left in your account. This is probably because of a casino cashout limit and if you’ve failed to pick this up in the terms and conditions then you’ve found yourself in a pretty sticky situation.
Help! What Can I Do?
Unfortunately, I don’t have a magic wand or the answer to your prayers here because if you’ve been caught by this rule, there’s usually nothing you can do about it. You’ll struggle to find a casino that will be willing to honour you the full withdrawal amount. So, although I can’t help you, what I can say is you’ll need to take it on the chin and learn from your mistakes. There’s no harm in contacting customer support but don’t expect miracles.
Yes, reading terms and conditions can be pretty boring but it takes just a few minutes of your time. A few minutes of your time for a life changing withdrawal. I know what I’d pick. Moral of the story? Read those terms and conditions. Take the fun option and be wise, don’t choose the stupid option and risk your winnings.
Check the terms and conditions to see if your bonus or deposit has a maximum cashout limit.
On a final note, trust me when I say these kinds of situations almost never have a happy ending and here at AskGamblers I love happy endings. So, take on board everything I’ve said in today’s blog and you’ll have your happy ever after.
